        ... great candidate for simple mods too! And a pad swap can go a long way.

        Pad swaps seem to do a lot for Hifiman cans; just pad swapped my HE-560 and like it a lot more.

        What pads are recommend for HE 4XX? I've got Brainwavz Angled Velours on my HE 560 and I really enjoy it!

        Isn't that the new-ish FotM can? Would be curious to hear your thoughts v other, more known headphones.

        HE6 mods and system synergy take quite a bit of time and testing to dial-in well for any given particular taste. It's a fickle headphone to work with and won't sound as good as a lot of other stuff out there just plugged into whatever you have around. Some could argue the investment of time and attention isn't worth it unless you know what sound you're going for.

        Well I had a modded HE 4 I LOVED, and I own an HE 560 [pad swap an silver cable] that I enjoy. So as some one who has and likes Hifiman Sound to an extent, I imagine the mods are what's needed to remove the faults I can't quite look past. Pad Swaps help a lot apparently

        An to be honest, neither my HE 4 nor my HE 560 have or had stock pads so it's a shame the stock pads seem to hold it back.

        For a $400 used headphone, no biggie. On a $1800 new yea pads are a cheap fix but why do I need them to begin with is my view point

        Back when I got the HD 800 I was originally going to get the HD 600. Kinda glad I waited to be honest, I've heard a lot of other Tube & Headphone designs and feel I can appreciate the 600 more so now!

      Ok, I will say the HD 650 Cable is built a bit more substantially than the stock 600 cable, an the all black aesthetic is a plus imo

        Yes actually I'm quite enjoying "as the romans do" HD 600 is quite a bit better than I remember. Ever curious to see how it and the crack turn out, oh and what difference the HD 650 cable will make if any

      Figured if I'm getting a HD 600 might as well try Crack with Speedball too. Good friend hooked me up, even included a box Tube replacements!

        I don't know where every one stands but I'm letting it run with white noise atm, HD 650 cable should be here monday and I'll give it a listen then.

        I don't buy into "burn in" but some do so I figured I'd better cover my bases before I share my thoughts. Still thanks for the comment!

        The stock cable is okay. The HD650 is better quality overall from what I have been told. Sennheiser makes decent cables. I have had dozens of headphones. Never issues with Sennheiser cables.

        Unless it's on the same amp and most important headphone as yours tube impressions are pretty useless. If you include the amp at least you might get better answers but there aren't a lot of rollers here.
